1. Tell us more about yourself and your profession.

I am a banker turned holistic nutritionist. For nearly 10 years, I was overweight and no fat-diets, crash regimes ever helped me to find my journey to fitness. So, I decided to study about food and fitness myself. Today, my transformational journey of losing 30 kg in 2 years has inspired thousands of weight watchers.

2. What is your fitness mantra?

I believe in fitness that is sustainable. If I can't be on a path for long-term, I wouldn't choose it. I stick to healthy Home-made Traditional food and eat seasonally. 

3. What are some major misconceptions about diets and exercises?

The biggest misconception is the fear of ghee, potato, rice, coconut, peanuts. People forget the health benefits of these foods and simply defame these for weight gain.

These foods become a scapegoat for the unhealthy habits of people like late-night eats, overeating, and sedentary lifestyle. 

4. How can one maintain a healthy lifestyle?

Exercise regularly, go back to eating for your genes. We have been eating how our forefathers did. If we move to western fads, it will simply rob us of Traditional foods, their benefits, and our culture. 

5. How do diets and exercise contribute to overall well being and happiness?

I don't believe in 'Diet'. I just believe in healthy and delicious homemade food. When you eat homemade food that tastes delicious, you will feel happier, feel free, and more likely to lose fat. 

Exercise is one of the most important pillars of staying healthy. It releases happy hormones, builds Immunity, and helps burn fat.

6. What is one piece of advice you would like to give someone who wishes to lose weight?

Cut all noise from the weight loss industry. Stop listening to what the world is saying. Just eat mindfully, and eat small portions every two hours to avoid cravings.
